Listed in Groce & Wallace as active 1854-60, based on the Census of 1860. There was another George Wright of Philadelphia (1850-1960) who exhibited genre painting in Philadephia and New York. It does not seem likely that they are the same person but they may have been related.
In addition, there was artist George Hand Wright (1872-1951) also of Philadelphia, who was probably a relative.
